When most people are asked to come up with uses for mirrors they will generally refer to them as personal grooming objects or decorations to be hung on the wall, able to bring more light into a room while making it appear more spacious. However, mirrors are widely used in other areas as well. Mirrors are used in architecture and building construction, interior design and can also be used in the manufacture of different technologies. As well as traditional scientific uses such as mirrors found in telescopes and lasers, these objects are commonly used in cameras and all kinds of industrial machinery too. The majority of the purposes for mirrors when used in technological creations are designed for visible light, but are also suitable for other types of waves in non-optical equipment. If you take a look around your home you would be surprised how much of your media equipment utilises mirrors within its construction. Take televisions and projectors, for instance. The latest high definition TVs and top video projectors use microscopic mirrors as a core component of their design. The mirror may take the form of a microchip or even as large mirrors, like when used in rear projection TVs.
